After My Lifetimevideo
poster: Ariel Hartman
length: 33:01
date added: October 8, 2017 New
event date: April 16, 1995
language: English
An excerpt from the two-CD set, After My Lifetime — a collection of Adi Da's talks (1974–2004) in which He considers the passing of His physical body, the significance of this Yogic Event, the ever-present Gift of the direct relationship to Him, and the never-ending Nature of His Work to Bless and Awaken all beings.

The audio excerpt is accompanied by photos from the occasion. This turns into a video clip of Adi Da speaking from 21:00 - 25:46, and then returns to photos of Adi Da speaking.

For more about this double CD, read the special article on the Adidam Revelation Magazine.

"I Am the Infinite One. And This Body was My Means, for a while, to make this plain to you — that is all. I Appear through every element in every plane, every domain within the cosmic domain. This is So. It is Eternally So. Always will be So, therefore. Always was So — but you did not notice Me directly. This is My first and consequential Incarnation to inform you about My Infinite and Eternal Nature and Work."

—His Divine Presence, Adi Da Samraj (July 11, 1995)

Łaska Cierpieniavideo

date added: October 5, 2017 New
event date: January 18, 1976
language: Polish
[Contains Polish subtitles. If you don't see them, press the Settings icon (the gear), select Subtitles, and then check Polish.]

Adi Da mówi o tym, że kiedy człowiek zrozumiemie, że zwykłe życie jest niewolą i ograniczeniem, wtedy praktyka duchowa staje się możliwa.

In this seminal discourse (at The Mountain Of Attention), from the early years of His Teaching Work, Adi Da speaks about the inevitable process of self-revelation and self-understanding that prepares the being for true Spiritual life.

The full talk is available on the CD, The Grace of Suffering, and on DVD as Volume 2 of the 25th Anniversary DVD Series.


This is a beautiful talk by Adi Da. But it IS very compressed, making quite a few points in a short space, and depending to a significant degree on a familiarity with Adi Da's spiritual teaching. Here are some notes that may help.

Throughout the talk, the technical term, "sadhana" (spiritual practice), is used.

Genuine spiritual practice is not about belief systems, mere rituals, or a little "peace of mind", but rather about actually locating the Divine, through the tangible Transmission of the Spiritual Master.

After a recent illness, a devotee mentions to Adi Da that he notices how the physical suffering of illness was distracting enough that he was not "able" to find Adi Da's Transmission when he is ill.

Adi Da acknowledges this, and responds with three more general points.

1. The illness didn't "make" the devotee lose the thread of practice; rather, he allowed himself to be distracted from God by the illness. When the devotee gets this, and sees how he himself is "doing" the turning away, he'll be able to "do better next time" by not turning away even when ill.

2. Until Divine Enlightenment — in other words, until there is no limit on one's spiritual practice — sadhana (spiritual practice) is always only reflecting back to devotees the remaining limits in their practice: where they are still turning away from the Divine, where they still need to become responsible for not turning away.

In the beginning, the "turning away" is very "crude": even mere physical suffering is enough to distract one from God. (If we find ourselves saying, "what do you mean, MERE physical suffering?" that definitely identifies us as spiritual beginners! :-) ) But as one grows in practice, and ceases to turn away in such a crude manner (as one becomes a "saint", "yogi", "sage", etc.), one discovers that one is still turning from the Divine at an even subtler level of the being (in the mind, the psyche, etc.)

It is only when that "turning away" has been inspected, understood, and transcended in every dimension of the being that Divine Realization occurs.

In this sense, for the genuine spiritual practitioner, physical suffering — along with every other circumstance that reveals to us our turning away from the Divine — is truly a Grace, enabling us to grow in our practice.

3. Where we are turning away is a reflection of what we are identifying with: the body, the mind, the soul, etc. (For example, if physical illness is enough to distract us from God, then the physical body is what we currently are identified with.) God-Realization only occurs when all "identities" less than God are understood and transcended.

In this sense, "there are no winners in God" — the Way is not about seeking, accomplishment, or winning, but rather about surrender to God, sacrifice of self, and ego-death. There's no "one" left to "win"! But the One Who Remains is perfectly, eternally happy.

My Work Has Always Been Profoundly Urgentvideo
poster: sourcetemplebrazil
length: 14:18
date added: September 14, 2017 New
language: English
In this passionate talk, Adi Da speaks to the crisis mankind is in and the urgency for true spiritual practice and the disposition that undermines mankind's assumption of separation.

Adi Da describes the extreme urgency of His Communication and Offering — for those who are in absolute need of Realization of That which is Perfectly Sufficient: Adi Da's Divine State. He points out that most human beings are distracted, and not aware of how profoundly they need what He is offering. Taking up the "right life" disciplines serves the growth that brings the devotee to that point of (undistracted, dis-illusioned) awareness of (and urgency and profound seriousness regarding) our real situation.

Accompanied by a slideshow of photos of Avatar Adi Da Samraj.

This talk is published in the book, Reality Is All The God There Is, as part of Chapter V: "What Is Required To Realize The Non-Dual Truth? The Controversy Between The Talking School and The Practicing School of Advaitism".

The Ego's Logic of Cause-and-Effectvideo
poster: DawnHorsePress
length: 02:04
date added: July 7, 2017
event date: October 20, 2004
language: English
Video excerpt from an Avataric Discourse given by Adi Da Samraj at Adi Da Samrajashram, on October 20, 2004. In this excerpt, Avatar Adi Da speaks about the Big Bang theory in the context of the ego's logic of cause-and-effect.

The complete Avataric Discourse (nearly four hours long) is available on the DVD, The Ego's Logic of Cause-and-Effect.

In this Discourse, Avatar Adi Da points out that the logic of cause-and-effect is operative not only in the conventional religious presumption that the Divine is the Cause of the world, but also in all human historical traditions—from the most ancient astrologically based cultures, to various Western philosophies, to the esoteric traditions that posit a subjective source for phenomena.

The Truth of the matter, Avatar Adi Da Reveals, is this: Everything and everyone that arises is merely an apparent modification of Reality Itself. Reality Itself is always Prior to the universe of conditional beings and things. And, ultimately, the process of Realizing Reality Itself utterly Outshines both the question of cause and the noticing of effects.

The True Food that Sustains Usvideo
part 1 of Adi Da Quotes

date added: June 14, 2017
language: English
An audio excerpt from Adi Da Samraj's early talk, "Renouncing the Search for the Edible Deity", accompanied by photos of Adi Da from a more recent Avataric Discourse.

We experience "independent" existence as a kind of madness, a seeming separation from food (both because of the cutting of the umbilical cord and as a feeling of separation from our ultimate source of sustenance, the Very Divine). We must instead be like the eating gorilla. . .

Adi Da: "The eating gorilla finds a cabbage in the jungle, sits down like a slob and munches away at the cabbage, and is completely benign, completely peaceful. . . . Therefore, the eating gorilla is the image of the true man, the true woman. He demonstrates the principle of true politics, of real human existence, in which we are always presently connected to the Food Source in Truth, and are always presuming connection, relationship, 'I love you.' "

"Renouncing the Search for the Edible Deity" is available as a CD here. A transcript is also available online and as a chapter in the book, The Yoga Of Right Diet.
